Subject: [PATCH 1/2] docs: Create a user-space API guide

This is meant to be the place for documentation relevant to application
developers.  It's empty for the moment, but at least we have a place now!

+
+While much of the kernel's user-space API is documented elsewhere
+(particularly in the man-pages_ project), some user-space information can
+also be found in the kernel tree itself.  This manual is intended to be the
+place where this information is gathered.
